WebVista Upgrade to Version 8 on January 8

Mark your calendars now! On Thursday, January 8, from 4:00-10:00 PM, WebVista B and WebVista C will be unavailable while we upgrade to Blackboard Vista 8. This is a minor upgrade, much like a service pack, and adds support for Firefox 3 for Windows, among other fixes. Your site will not be changed or negatively affected. The vendor called it "version 8" because they needed to synchronize their Blackboard and Vista product names; version 8 is the next version after version 4. We will send more information on the upgrade soon.
